Ooh look at the C4's number plate, R943 OCD. Two small changes to P993 OCD and it would have automatic entry into the illuminati... Grin

Great colour btw, although I prefer the less cluttered rear (no high/third brake light) and the Black Script on the C2.

Very pretty indeed. It's one of those moody colour which looks fab on an overcast day Thumb

Fab on a 993 and imo THE best colour alongside black & mint green on a 964 coupe

Was the slate grey available on the wide body or was it PTS?

If I'd had a choice it would be Iris Blue - whatever colour, the is no better rear end view!

Peter Morgan's 911 book states Slate Grey was a special-order colour in 1995 only. So after that PTS.

Paternie's Porsche 911 Red Book mirrors this: R and S programme cars have Slate as an option, T and V do not. This is a great little book.

As I might have mentioned before... Slate Grey was often specced up by Porsche Cars GB for early press and directors' cars.

Love Slate Grey on the early 911's, well, I've no idea what precise year they started doing Slate Grey? Nice looking cars in the first pic.
Portiacraft seem to have one they describe as graphite grey but it looks like Slate Grey, don't think graphite was a 993 colour anyway. Definitely seen it on a 964 turbo and that looked great - that's the car I want if the Classic market ever comes tumbling down! I'll pay £1k above whatever zingari bids Wink

Slate with Black/Marble is a cracking combo and that car would look stunning on some body coloured splits. Wink

Good mileage. I doubt that will hang around. At first glance it appears to be a vaguely affordable route into 993 ownership. If it all stacks up that is. Could be a lemon Grin

Looks Slate to me - sloppy not to get it right. Seats the early 964 ones or my eyes?
